DHUBRI/KOKRAJHAR, Aug 26 � Fresh incidents of violence today rocked strife-torn Lower Assam districts leaving one person dead in Dhubri and two injured in Kokrajhar even as protesters blocked a national highway in the state, reports PTI.

Police said that a body with injury marks was found in Sukhanjora village under Bogribari Police Station area in Dhubri district this morning, taking the toll in the violence since July 19 to 87. The person, who was killed, was missing since yesterday.

As the news of the recovery of the body spread, angry protesters blocked the NH-31 at Matrijhora. The police later took the body for post-mortem and the blockade was lifted.

After a brief lull, violence had returned to Chirang district last evening when bodies of six persons, all relief camp inmates of Rajpara, were found at Amguri Bazar.

It may be mentioned that two ministers Rockybul Hussain and Nilomani Sen Deka today visited the area where the bodies were found and took stock of the situation.

Night curfew was, however, continuing in the troubled districts of Kokrajhar, Chirang and Dhubri and the Army carried out patrol of the sensitive areas in these districts.

Our Kokrajhar Correspondent adds: Unidentified miscreants attacked eight persons with lethal weapons near Salakati Railway Station this morning around 4 am while they were on their way to the railway station. Four of them were seriously injured, out of whom two were admitted in Lower Assam Hospital, Bongaigaon. The other two seriously injured were shifted to Dhubri Civil Hospital.

Our Bongaigaon Correspondent adds: Meanwhile, Chirang district ABMSU at a press meet held today at Bongaigaon demanded immediate arrest of Kampa Borgoyari, Deputy Chief of BTC and Anjali Daimari, president of BWJF for making provocative and communal statements before the media, because of which the attack on minority camp inmates took place on Saturday.

The student body�s working president Sah Kamal Khandakar demanded arrest of the culprits involved in Saturday�s killing incident within 24 hours. He threatened that the student body would be compelled to go for an indefinite strike in Chirang district if its demand is not met. He also demanded promulgation of President�s Rule in the state to tackle all sorts of violence.

Similarly the student body�s vice president Ruhul Amin urged the government to seize all illegal arms from the former rebel group to maintain peace in BTAD.
